Indiana Jones 5
Speaking with HeyUGuys, Harrison Ford stated he would not deign to make another Indiana Jones film unless Stephen Spielberg and Lucasfilm were “in a position to kill it.”
I don’t really want to give them what they want to see, I want to give them something they didn’t anticipate. They are used to a degree of disappointment when you revisit. Certainly, the Marvel movies have made a spectacular example of a success of worked the other way around, they killed it! Well, we’re not going to make another Indiana Jones unless we are in a position to kill it. We want it to be the best. We’ve got some scheduling issues and a few script things to do but we are determined to get it right before we get it made.

Mulan goes to war in a new TV spot.
A Quiet Place Part II
Paramount has also released a new teaser and featurette for A Quiet Place Part II.
Despite the recent slump in ratings, Doctor Who is “a long way” from cancellation according to the BBC’s drama controller, Piers Wenger.
I worked on Doctor Who myself and produced it for many years and I can honestly say I don’t think it’s been in better health editorially. The production values have never been better.
It’s an incredibly important show for young audiences, it’s still watched by families in a world where there are fewer shows that have the power to do that. It will always be an important show for us and we’re a very long way from wanting to rest it.
According to Stephanie Beatriz on Twitter, filming on the eighth season of Brooklyn 99 would prevent her from even theoretically playing Jennifer Walters in the upcoming She-Hulk television series at Disney+.
how do I get my arms to actually look like this. Can someone give me a plan or something?
(Also, I think this show starts shooting in August and I’m unavailable because we’re shooting season 8 of Brooklyn 99 at that same time. But still I’m serious about the arms) https://t.co/PLqdR89obQ
